This handmade book is about my childhood in Cuba. I was born in Elia, in the province of Camaguey. I lived in that town until the age of 5 when my father bought a farm in the town of Ceiba Mocha, in the province of Matanzas. Clara was our babysitter when we lived in Elia. I always think of her, even though her image I cannot remember but her spirit is alive in my memories. The photographs are from 1957.
